For most vertebrate animals, tail plays an important role for their body, providing variant functions to enhance their mobility. Arque proposes an artificial biomimicry-inspired anthropomorphic tail, allowing us to alter our body momentum. The internal structure of the tail is driven by four artificial muscles providing the actuation mechanism. We highlight its applications as a normal tail providing active momentum alteration for balancing situations or as a full-body haptic feedback device.
